Epson Ultrasmooth is a natural white 100% cotton rag, acid-free paper designed specially for optimum photographic reproduction. It has excellent D-max (black) depth and color saturation performance compared to most fine art papers we have tested.
It has a very smooth surface with the slightest calendering. This surface is sensitive to scratches, and it is often recommended to protect the surface with a spray. We do offer a protective spray for $2.00/ sq. ft.
